Hmmm, I’m thinking this could be misinterpreted as Thimble Head or Lampshade Head?


Spam it

June 29, 2009

When I first got the words for today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day), my first thought for “spam” was “bad emails” … then I remembered Spam, the “meat product”. Have fun checking out their site where they list recipes, games, merchandise, their history and trivia — you can even join their fan club!

Treat me good

June 28, 2009

We recently made the following treat for the first time this year and wow, kinda forgot just how yummy this combo is: prosciutto paired with bocconcini cheese and tomatoes mixed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, pepper and basil. The blending of all of these delicious flavours is something I plan to experience again soon! Mmm mmm mmm …

My CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) to share:

Party on

June 27, 2009

If you’re looking silly gag gifts and props, party favours and supplies or costumes and related accessories, you should visit It’s My Party on Toronto’s Danforth Avenue. Other fun things we found in the store include: pink cowboy hat with fuzzy trim, suction cup balls, a fake hyena head to mount on your wall, the Obsessive-Compulsive action figure and a hula man doll.

So many other things to see and play with — have fun roaming the aisles!

Imagine that

June 26, 2009

Just wanted to share a passage from The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, that has always made me smile and appreciate the imagination of children:

“I pondered deeply, then, over the adventures of the jungle. And after some work with a colored pencil I succeeded in making my first drawing. My Drawing Number One. It looked something like this:

Drawing Number One

I showed my masterpiece to the grown-ups, and asked them whether the drawing frightened them.

But they answered: “Frighten? Why should any one be frightened by a hat?”

My drawing was not a picture of a hat. It was a picture of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant. But since the grown-ups were not able to understand it, I made another drawing: I drew the inside of a boa constrictor, so that the grown-ups could see it clearly. They always need to have things explained. My Drawing Number Two looked like this:

Drawing Number Two

The grown-ups’ response, this time, was to advise me to lay aside my drawings of boa constrictors, whether from the inside or the outside, and devote myself instead to geography, history, arithmetic, and grammar. That is why, at the age of six, I gave up what might have been a magnificent career as a painter. I had been disheartened by the failure of my Drawing Number One and my Drawing Number Two. Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.”

I guess today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) was kinda inspired by the above:

What kind of pasta would go best with today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day): fettucine? rigatoni? penne?

I don’t know who else is suffering through allergies right now but all I know is that I feel your pain!

Today’s CSOTD (Creative Something of the Day) reflects this:
